You can raise funds for your cause while helping the environment, encourage the community to recycle, and help the transition to a circular economy

Over 700 not-for-profit organisations, schools, sports clubs, community groups and charities have benefited from fundraising through the recycling of drink containers through their state’s Container Deposit Schemes using TOMRA’s unique technology.

So far, NSW, NT, QLD, and WA charities and community groups partnering with TOMRA have raised over $2M through our reverse vending technology.

Become an on-screen donation partner!

TOMRA Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs) enable recyclers to donate their drink container refund(s) to one of up to four donation partners listed on the screens.

Without upfront costs and no ongoing charges, it gives you access to a large network of potential donors. Not only can you raise precious funds and further raise your profile in your community but receiving donations directly from the listing on our screens is an easy way for volunteers, supporters and generous recyclers to participate and give back to the community, while helping the environment.

Community Fundraising Bottle and Can Drives

Also called ‘The new sausage sizzle”

A wide range of community groups proactively engages their volunteers and supporters to draw out as many drink containers as possible that they then return to their local machine or collection point to cash in the refunds.

Each one of these organisations decide to use the scheme to help the environment and reduce litter by placing “donation bins” or “large donation bags” at their local schools, swimming pool, footy clubs, or caravan parks to collect cans and bottles. These are then returned to a collection point, and the resulting funds are channelled back into important community programs that make their communities a better place to live.

The funds raised help finance important programs, from drought assistance & fire relief projects to food relief in-school programs and a wide range of other vital community initiatives.
